A lovely, soft and subtle yarn set for a faded / ombre sweater, shawl, blanket, or other project!

Masham are hardy sheep with lustrous but slightly coarser wool, which blend beautifully with the better-known Bluefaced Leicester sheep’s wool to create this fine, soft yarn.  At a 450m per 100g meterage, it will create a lovely, light, drapey fabric. You could also hold the yarn double or strand it with some botanically dyed yarns to make the colours more subtle or muted.

    Care Instructions:

    In order to minimise environmental footprint and preserve wool's natural properties, the yarn has not been superwash treated. This does mean that you will need to soak and hand-wash (avoid animated rubbing) your finished project in cold or room temperature water and gentle pH-neutral soap.

    Please contact me if you have any questions around this product. I can also take photos of different yarns or colours next to each other if that would be helpful.

    Happy crafting! I hope your project is a success and gets lots of use!
